A male Summer Tanager came to bathe this afternoon.  He perched in mountain 
laurel above the running water and appeared to anticipate taking his bath.  His 
whole body shook with enthusiam, especially the drooping wings and tail.  After 
rehearsing the movements for some time, he flew down to the water and went 
through the real experience of bathing.  I thought it was humorous, but maybe 
the bird was trying to shake out loose feathers or dirt before entering the 
One of the simple pleasures in life.
